Morecambe and Wise were originally going to be called Morecambe and
Leeds which leads me to believe that Ernie Wise was maybe born here.
There's a book of M&W sketches by Eddie Braben in Borders in Leeds
that's got some absolute belters in and is a bargain at only a fiver.
And because the voices are so familiar it's just like playing the video
in your head.

There sure is, Roz - Peter O'Toole. From somewhere t'other side of Leeds
(might even be the Great Yorkshire Beer Desert, in which case it was
valuable experience for him to fight Bey Officer José Ferrer and his
highly trained team of top comedy 'tached janissaries).

I was so disapointed the year before last that it was not on any of the
myriad channels of c**p on cable TV over Christmas, my lovely boys
(spouse and sons) bought me my very own copy. I never need to go
through the Christmas period without my fix of sentimentality again.
None of the said boys will actually sit through the whole film with me
they seem to have an unwritten rota. Each stays a while until relieved
by the next. They seem to think I need a companion at all times while
watching this. My ballet tapes do not nessecitate(1) this companionship.

For necessary I was taught,

Never Eat Cake, Eat Salmon Sandwiches And Remain Young

It gets the esses and sees right for its derivations too.

I was taught "n-e-c-e-s-s-a-r-y". But then I did have a boring teacher

I was taught "shirt"

(One collar, two sleeves)

Which is more or less the same.

Except I'd muddle it up and think two cuffs....

So long as you remember which word to apply it to -- I could always
remember the expression, but kept forgetting which word it was for and
ending up with things like "sucess".

But shirt isn't how you spell necessary. Bit silly, innit, teaching you
to spell shirt when you need to spell necessary?
